Can we all just take a moment and talk about how important brows are? Basically, no one cared about them until Cara Delevingne stepped onto the scene and showed everyone how much they really change your face.
For me personally, I was a total plucker for basically ever. When I saw how powerful eyebrows really are in the case of framing your face, I immediately stopped plucking and let my brows grow, grow, grow—literally to the point where I was actually repulsed by what I saw in the mirror. Now, my brows are hella shaped and full, and I’m feeling more like a Burberry model than ever (minus the whole supermodel body thing, but..).
Needless to say that through my brow journey, I’ve used a ton of different types of brow products since my needs have changed so much over the time that I was growing them out. It can be intimidating to shop at Fresh Dailies, take a look at all the brow products and try to pick the one that’s right for your brow type, so I’ve put together this little guide for you bitties.
New Waterproof Eyebrow Pencil
This is the product that I’ve been most recently obsessing over. Because my brows are in pretty good shape and all I really want to do is sculpt them a bit more, this pencil is perfect. As you can see in the photo above, this pencil takes on the shape of a tall triangle. This means that you can easily create long, clean, straight lines to get your brows in perfect shape. Of course, you can use this to fill in sparse areas, but I think no matter how you use this, you’re going to be left with very sculpted brows.
I personally use 4 in 1 Easy Long Wear Waterproof Eyebrow Pencil. Its neutral tone is almost fool-proof, matching any color brow. More swipes create a deeper color.
Find the perfect eyebrow pencil to give your eyebrows a cleaner and more beautiful look. Fresh Dailies carries every eyebrow pencil you could want here as well as tons of eye makeup and mascara to go along with your gorgeous looking brows!

You’re probably wondering why I have two brow pencils here, but trust me when I say that all brow pencils are not created equal. Of both brow pencils, this is the one that’s going to make your brow look the most natural. Yes, you can define them like you would with the sculpting pencil, but this pointed pencil is really best for drawing in individual brow hairs and filling in sparse areas. Whether you are someone with great shape who just needs to fake a few hairs or someone who needs to create false hairs for half your brow, a simple, sharp brow pencil like this is a great option.
Pomades are a really great tool to use if you are looking to completely reshape your brows. For those of you who are on the skinny brow struggle bus, using a gel pomade will probably change your life. You can draw in individual brow hairs and fill in sparse areas with just one product. A pomade is also the best option for someone who wants supercut and clean brows like you are probably seeing all over Instagram. I love using it with a very skinny, long, and pointed brush like this liner brush.
My go-to is 2 in 1 Lasting Dip Eyeliner and Mascara, as shown above. It’s affordable, lasts all day, and doesn’t flake all over the place.
Brow Volumizing Fiber Gel
A tinted brow gel is a great option for someone who has a great shape to their brows but lacks volume or struggles with unevenness throughout the brow. Ever since I grew out my brows, this is one product that I use daily. It has small brow-like fiber in it, so even when it’s adding color, it’s actually attaching fibers to the hairs you have to make your brows appear thicker and fuller. This isn’t the best option for someone who has super thin brows since it’s only going to stick to hairs you already have, not create new ones.
Brow Gels To Keep Your Eyebrows in Place
For those of you who are blessed with beautifully shaped and full brows, all you should really need is a good clear brow gel. This brow product won’t add fibers, volume, or color to your brows. It’s really just going to hold them in place. If you’re someone with bushier brows, you’ll probably love a clear brow gel since they can hold any crazy hairs right where you want them all day long.
The Best Products For Perfectly Enhancing Your Eyebrows
The way you go about enhancing your eyebrows can totally change your face. Thin, dark brows offer a romantic 1920s look; arched, a sharply angled shape looks sexy and sophisticated; thick, square brows will always be reminiscent of Audrey Hepburn. But navigating through the waxes and the fillers, pencils, and powders can be overwhelming to a brow beginner, so we’ve rounded up the best of the best products to fill, pluck, define, and shape your eyebrows.
Now, while there are some eyebrow looks that I’m not too keen on–crescent moon brows, anyone?–it is up to you to decide how you want to do your own face framers. If you’ve got a crazy hair color, you can play that up by matching your eyebrows. If you want an ombre brow, go for it (just don’t be surprised when everybody thinks you always look surprised). No matter what, these products will help you achieve the look you’re going for, so give them a try next time you want to define your eyebrows.
Eyebrow makeup can transform the arches above your eyes into wonderful frames. They can add definition, fill in sparse areas, deepen, cover gray, create a hue closer to your tresses and hold brows in place.
We’ll go over the different kinds of products out there, what they each are good for, and tips for using them. If the right tones, products, and tools are used correctly, brows can look magnificent and natural. Lack of skill, off tones, and an overly heavy hand can create the wrong kind of the focal point. More than one product may be used to get what you’re trying to achieve.
